First of all, I'm not justifying the minority of Wire fans' misbehaviour in any way. Like most Wire fans, we're all quite ashamed that those people climbing up were representing our club as supporters.

Nothing's quite black and white though (no reference to Hull!). My Dad has just returned from France after watching the game. He's 68 and always gives honest, trustworthy opinions of things. He was 30m away, but had a reasonable view of events unfolding, not the best, but nevertheless valid. He said that some of the Catalan fans in the VIP area had started to throw glass bottles and glasses at the Wire fans. One of these hit a kid and it went off from then.

There's no excuse for the scenes we saw, but without making excuses, some of you may understand why it kicked off. Its not black and white. Like most things, it takes two to tango (pardon the pun). So far, from reports from friends who went, the Catalan fans played more than a part to causing this. Also, Ben Pomeroy has been mentioned by a few- I won't say anymore!

That said, those fans climbing up should be identified and punished. It's genuinely an embarrassment to me as a Wire fan and most others who are descent, respecting fans like most of you. I would like to think that most other fans have a nice experience with our fans, as I do with you if I have the pleasure to meet you in the pub before or after games. A few years back when we played Cats at Widnes in the cc semi-final, the whole stand of Wire fans stood up and clapped when the few Catalans fans made their arrival. Nice one to the previous Hudds poster as well- our friendship and respect certainly goes the other way.


So you are blaming Catalans fans even though countless people have already said it was an ex Warrington player who threw the first bottle?
The Leigh and Wakefield fans mentality......

For those claiming the saints coach is fake news.

We can be bold enough to make a stand and do battle for our views and beliefs. But we must strive to be mature enough not to resort to unnecessary personal attacks upon people with opposing views.

All this bulls$$t because of some fake news!!

Oh dear.....
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

As always the 3% of any "fans" who cause the trouble get the publicity, the 97 % who go away peacefully don`t.

The idiot element of our support only seems to come out for a big game, or a game where there is a day on the sauce on the cards and there's no football on.
But I think you could say that for a lot of RL clubs. I've been to a number grand finals (2 of which didn't involve Warrington) and witnessed some shocking stuff.
I could also write a list of nasty stuff I've witnessed since I started following RL in 1989 involving most clubs in Super League and the Championship.
